Copaxone Reaction

Postby LR1234 » Tue Dec 13, 2011 11:17 am

Just wanted to quickly document my first bad reaction to copaxone after being on it 5 months.

I injected it as usual (although this time I did bleed quite badly afterwards which makes me think I might have injected into a blood vessel)

After about 3 minutes I had a feeling of very very mild breathing issues and a slight feeling of flushing (this was all so minimal that although I knew it was a reaction it did not phase me)

Then about half an hour later I was laying in bed asleep when I was woken up with the feeling of being really cold....this progressed into full shivering, teeth chattering and goosepimple stuff. it felt like I had a high fever or something (although my temp was normal)

After an hour it went and although I felt a bit dizzy it was gone.

I am sure many of us have had reactions to copaxone so I just wanted to let people know what happened to me........lets hope today's injection goes better!!
